Shades of Gray

Getting this week's homework in the nick of time...

An absolutely amazing story can be read here.

I couldn't even begin to do it justice by describing it to you, so I'm going to whet your appetite by quoting directly the very first paragraph:

"The rhythm of her Nikes slapping the pavement countered the pace of her breathing. While it didn't quite match completely, it was comforting for the mismatched tempos mimicked her mood. There had been a lot going on in Annie's life; everything except the one thing she wanted. Slowly she pushed all the thoughts out of her mind and focused on the beat pulsating in her ears and the burn in her calves. She was one mile in with two still waiting to be traveled; a daunting task when ten laps around the station make one mile."

There are 10 chapters/posts so far, so it won't take you long to catch up, and believe me, you are in for a treat.

The story is written by Bernice, who has a blog about her day-to-day life here.
